The Direction is a mandatory field in the Nodinite Log Events and is vital to the Endpoints entity.

EndPointDirection is a mandatory field (number) part of a Nodinite Log Event. The information qualifies the direction for the Endpoint. Use this information to facilitate search operations and create self-service Log Views for your business.

Repository Endpoint Directions
From the Repository Model you can manage Endpoints and filter on Direction.

Nodinite includes a Repository Model where you can manage Endpoints among other Systems Integrations related artifacts. An Endpoint has a direction indicated by a constant value listed in the table next:
